Westside Union School District’s highest priority is the safety and well-being of our students, staff and community members. With that in mind, we are striving to provide a steady flow of information to families and help them make good, healthful decisions. Many parents have asked questions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, what we are doing about the situation, and what may occur in the future.

This morning, the Westside Union School District Board of Trustees met and unanimously voted to extend the closure of all Westside schools until May 5.

 

I know many of you are following the news related to COVID-19 and seeing all of the measures being implemented to help reduce the spread of the disease. Most of you are aware that both the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Governor of California have declared that everyone is to shelter at home, practice social distancing, and to gather only in groups of 10 or less. 

 

This past week has been an incredible learning opportunity for all of us. COVID-19 has continued to spread throughout our county, state, country and throughout the world.

Students who participate in the school lunch program will be able to pick up a "grab and go" meal for breakfast and lunch at the following schools between 11:00 a.m. and noon, Monday –Friday, March 16-20, 2020 at limited locations.

Our schools will be closed from Monday, March 16-20, 2020. Thereafter, we will begin our scheduled Spring Break from March 23-April 3, 2020. Essential personnel may be on duty as needed, but for all others, you should not plan to come onto your campus or work site. Your supervisor will notify you if you need to be present for work.

We will close all of our schools and offices beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 until Friday, March 20, 2020. Our spring break begins on Monday, March 23 and concludes on April 3, 2020. The Board will meet again on March 31, 2020 to determine if our schools will reopen on Monday, April 6, 2020.

We are taking additional steps to keep our school safe for the students, staff and community and are monitoring a number of sources every day.
